This is a question That's me on TV!

Hotdog asks: Ever been on TV? I once managed to "accidentally" knock Ant (but not Dec) over live on the box.

We last asked this in 2004, but we know you've sabotaged more telly since then

Back in about 1996 before I had my knee destroyed I worked for Securicor Pony Express, the courier company that supplied all the riders with Black and Blue bike gear and white bikes. I was contracted to a major UK bank working clearing and everyday I did 5 runs around various bank branches picking up work.
As you can imagine the work was boring. Same thing everyday really did our heads in so to make things a bit more fun we would do some pretty illegal things in the traffic. The usual no hands, eyes closed, skids, wheelies, pretty much anything to pass the time.

Now that summer the Police were having a crackdown on cyclists jumping traffic lights. They claimed the worst junction in the UK for this was the junction of Earls Court road and High Street Kensington to the south of Holland park. So one morning they had a big operation there with 20 or 30 foot officers and invited ITN news down for publicity. Now I didn't really notice them, I was generally more than half asleep or hung over in the mornings and so just drove as usual, it was only the next morning when I got a call from the Boss that I found out what I had done. I had been sitting at the lights and pulled away straight up onto the rear keeping the front in the air passing behind the Senior Officer being questioned who didn't notice nor did the camera man as he didn't pan to follow me. Unluckily I was the only rider with long auburn air so even though the plate wasn't visible and I didn't get fired I still got a bollocking but even the Boss admitted it looked good.

20 or 30 foot officers?
Fucking hell that's some big coppers. How did their uniforms fit?

No, Really?
It's almost like he was intentionally misunderstanding it to make a humorous statement.
